Europe and the Faith


Published March 19, 2006


A broad popular survey of European history, emphasizing Europe's continuity of civilization from the days of the Roman Empire to the present day, as well as the importance of the Catholic Church to European history and life.

This is Belloc at his quirkiest. His hatred of corporation capitalism and his love of diversity in unity are both on display, as he argues for the proposition that the Roman Empire never really fell. (He also insists on the special importance of France and England to European history, as one might guess.)
